Amazon India is developing a generative artificial intelligence (AI) tool called SahAI (help/assist) for its business partners to help them with the backend of any particular product. Still in trial stage, this new generative AI is aimed at breaking barriers and helping many new businesses to come on the marketplace, said Amazon during Sambhav summit in New Delhi on Thursday.

The SahAI tool will especially assist the small businesses with content, pictures, product details, summary and other aspects of a product.
